YOUNGSTOWN — Construction for Mill Creek MetroParks' parking lot improvements project will begin Monday (June 29). 

Improvements are being made at the following locations:

  • The East Golf Hike & Bike Trail parking lot (West Golf Drive).
  • The Flats parking lot.

Valley Drive (at the Suspension Bridge) may be temporarily closed during construction, but access to the East Golf Hike & Bike Trail and the Flats will remain open.

Throughout the duration of construction, parking for these facilities will be designated at the East Golf Hike & Bike Trailhead at U.S. Route 224 and Shields Road for trail access and at the Oak Grove and Idora parking lots for access to the Flats.

The parking lot improvements project is expected to be completed within two months. Construction dates may adjust depending on weather conditions.
